A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about the Large Florida Avocado that a friend and I tried to take down. Well, round two happened yesterday! This time I turned to two of my roomies for guacamole-eating assistance. They happily accepted the challenge.
I buy these avocados not-quite-rock hard and let them ripen on the counter. It's too risky to buy soft avocados at the store. (I learned this after purchasing many a ripe avocado, only to open them and find bruised, less tasty avocado innards.)
More than a handful!
Did I mention that these avocados are also called "slimcados?" According to their sticker, they have 30% less fat than regular avocados. I can't tell a difference in taste. If anything, these giant 'cados just might be creamier.
Here's a bowlful of chunks from one large Florida avocado.
I've always made guacamole with just a fork, but this time, a potato masher made things quicker and easier (though I still had avocado mush rising up over the sides of the bowl).
Unfortunately, there was no lemon juice to be found in the communal fridge, and I didn't purchase any fresh cilantro, but I still made a decent bowl of guac with cracked black pepper, garlic, and a little bit of cumin and coriander.
This made for many servings. It took 24 hours for all of the guacamole to be finished. My roomies did a commendable job.
How do you season your guac?
